Which bearing?
Mostly depends on amount of salt exposure. On my '09 Vue, I got my front passenger side bolts out...big nut off, disc brake carrier off, hub bolts off, and couldn't get the bearing assembly off the knuckle. Corrosion bonded.

I tried Map heat and slide hammer. No go. Had to reassemble and drove the car to top local mechanic with Acetylene aka big heat to break the bond. My car is very low miles as well but was driven in salt in Michigan winter.
